Russia needs to send a discrete message to Turkey not to mess with international flights to and from Russia, something that will get the Turks attention.

That Turkey was willing to mess with the Russians at all says something about what they think they know.

Beer is also rich with electrolytes which is why a cool one is so welcome on a very hot day. Home brew is even richer in assorted nutrients. Just don’t overdo it. A beer would also relax an anxious new mother and increase her fluid consumption, essential for milk production. Been there, done that (the milk production, not the beer ;-) )

My late husband had a 6’7” friend nicknamed Oop as in Ally Oop the comic character. For some reason he had access to a brewery when a teen. He would scoop up beer vat residue (full of brewer’s yeast) by the handful and eat it. Don’t know if he got so big because of it, or if he craved it because he was growing so big.

Note here I’m not a stout fan, but if you have the chance visit the Guinnes factory in Dublin, drink a Guinness that’s hours old. In the South you’ll drink Beamish which is like a Guinness with a slap in the face -kidding.

Several of my ancestors fought in these conflicts back when the Czars were still running things.

[but, it did do MACH-3 in 1973]

I guess that made a big boom. I wonder if an Egyptian was flying it or some East Bloc pilot. I used to hear stories about Russians talking on the North Vietnamese fighter frequencies.

“of course the russians might not take kindly to turkey
rummaging through their secret stuff.”

No worries. I’m sure the Turks will give it back.

And the Scots and Irish wear kilts to prevent injury from falling in a drunken stupor while fumbling with a zipper, plus the added bonus is that there is no sound to alert the sheep!

“There is a theory that they used vacuum tubes to protect against EMP pulses.”

So then,,, my ‘56 Fender Pro Amp will still work if we’re hit by an EMP pulse attack? Cool! If there’s any electricity.

Go Russia. I hope they start nuking the muzzies asap. Hell, they could double team them with the Israelis. Lord knows odumbi won’t lift a finger, well maybe the middle one.

ah the good old 60s, the peak of American Engineering. We put real spacecraft on Mars and found life (exotic chemistry is what it was called), we put men on the moon, we built those giant Valkrye Bombers that could fly mach3. Those were some bad ass times all right. oh yeah and we build little Davy Crocketts too.

But nowadays we no longer lead the world, we have to hope others do what needs to be done. Hopefully Russia will start crushing moslum butt along the same time the Israelis start it up.

I’d love to see the Russians wup Turkish butt. The Turks have been nothing but back stabbing trators to Nato and the U.S. Back when the attacked the Greeks and later when they refused to help us attacking Saddam.

A round of Vodka for everybody.

“‘56 Fender Pro Amp”

Yep, you’re good to go. Just don’t have it plugged in when the shock hits or it’s fried with the rest of our modern junk.

Someone needs to build a vacuum-tube Freeper Computer so we won’t miss out on the forum in case of an EMP.

The servers are already vacuum-tube powered if I recall... :)

(Just joking!!!)

Not in the plane design; in the cargo hold.

“Reports that Russia may have been smuggling weapons in on a passenger airline”

So says a paid Soros hack in the left wing media. What else you got?
